This kit is to commemorate Gundam's 30th anniversary & to mimic the 1/1 scale RX-78-2 at Shizuoka.
Been excited about this kit ever since it was announced few months ago.
I'm not a fan of 1/144 scale gunplas mainly because of its articulation & details are not as good as an MG. Yes, there are a few that came out with better articulation, but none came close in detail than the RG.
RG or Real Grade is a grade higher than HGUC in 1/144 scale. Theres a lot of parts that make up for the panels etc. Its like building an MG (Master Grade) but in smaller scale.
For this particular kit, I won't be painting the parts.
Next up will be the stickers/decals & panel lining.
